- Session II: August 4-27
Join local jazz legend Miles Black for your choice of one or two months this summer, for a hands-on masterclass in the art of improvisation. Participants will develop a set of theoretical tools to have at their disposal when playing, develop a deeper understanding of the role that improv plays in jazz, and gain that all important experience as they play along with Miles and for each other in a supportive, relaxed virtual environment. Each session centres around a different tune, and each month Miles will focus on a different jazz genre, as well as an array of approachable jazz standards.
Open to teen and adult players of standard jazz instruments, all levels of improv experience accommodated.
Please note: each 8-part course covers new repertoire, so is suitable for both new and returning participants.
